ICYMI: Runaway Tractor At Michigan Race Track

posted by Scott Hammer - 

Last weekend wasn't so good weather-wise for racing because of a lot of rain in the area, but a few tracks in the region braved the elements to put on a show for the fans. Once such track was Tri-City Motor Speedway up in Auburn, MI. Apparently Pete Badgero was helping run in the dirt track on a tractor after a rain shower when it collided with a Suburban and Badgero fell off. The tractor then continued on its own and the accident would cost Badgero his left foot. Track crews scrambled to corral to runaway tractor as the you can see in the videos below. Track owner Steve Puvalowski jumped on to a backhoe to attempt to stop the out of control farm implement and eventually was able to get it stop before anyone else got hurt.
